"Our Campaign's purpose is very simple: Removing barriers, empowering women. This is about addressing inclusivity and making it far easier for women to train for and join our industry. We want to help create new heroes for the young girls who dream big and better support and ultimately more bright futures for the women who choose to walk this path."
- Gavin Martin
"Women in Action" is an initiative and campaign created by the ISA and our founders to create a better on-ramp into the industry, better promote gender diversity and equality and empowering young girls and women to pursue their dreams of becoming stunt performers and action actors.
Gender is a scary topic to debate these days and nobody can get this right for everyone, but we cannot deny that we have seethe issues young women face when considering joining the Stunt Industry, or when working in the Entertainments industry. So, this effort is our way of trying to address that. We're deeply proud to maintain an equal split of male and female amongst our students most years and The ISA is committed to providing access to training programs, mentorship opportunities, and female-specific support to improve the on-ramp into the industry.
Through talking to women at all stages of their career (including pre-enrolment), listening and learning, adapting, providing female-specific support, famous Female-Mentors, scholarships and much more, we aim to make it far easier to dream of being a stunt woman, to sign up for courses, to train and qualify, and be helped into work.
We aim to champion women working in our industry, and by doing this we can present them as the positive role models for more young women to look up to, follow, or be mentored by, and clear the path for more young female students to train and enter the wonderful world of entertainment work.
We believe that by working together, we can create a better future for young girls and women in the entertainment industry, where everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed."
